Cultivated Silk Top details:
• Fiber content: Silk

Cultivated Silk Top description:

Cultivated silk is the finest of all fibers. Cultivated silk worms, Bombyx mori, eat only mulberry leaves, which contain very little tannin, so their fibers are beautifully white. It is perfect for dyeing, blending and spinning. Knitters take note: 100% silk yarn will not hold its shape well when knitted because silk fibers have very little elasticity. Consider blending silk with wool or camel down for a more "knittable" yarn, or use textured stitches and cables.

The cocoons are packaged in 1 oz. bags and contain approximately 80-90 cocoons.

Silk Bombyx - Hankies details:
• Fiber content: Silk

Silk Bombyx - Hankies description:

Silk caps are the degummed cocoons of Bombyx mori. Each cap has several fine layers of continuous fibers which make the strongest, shiniest silk possible. To spin a cap, separate the layers, extend each layer into a large "smoke ring" and then open the ring and wind the strand of fibers onto a paper towel tube. One cap weighs between three-quarters of an ounce to one ounce. Hankies are square as compared to the caps that are bell shaped. Approximately 3 hankies weigh one ounce.

Silk Noil details:
• Fiber content: Silk

Silk Noil description:

Silk noil is short knots of fiber gathered from the inner part of the silk cocoon. When spinning you will find the characteristics of this fiber to be very similar to those of cotton. Be sure to put enough twist in your yarn to ensure its strength. It can be spun alone or try blending it with other fibers. Silk noil is the perfect choice when you want to add texture to your yarn. If you are looking for a wider color palette, you will be happy to know tussah silk noil dyes well. We recommend using the Wash Fast Acid or Country Classic dyes.

Tussah Silk Top description:

Tussah silk is produced by wild or semi-cultivated worms of the genus Antheraea. These worms eat leaves of oak, plum, jujube or castor bean plants which contain varying amounts of tannin. Depending upon the diet of the silk worm, tussah silk can range in color from off-white to light brown (see item 395). The fibers of our tussah silk top are a soft honey color. They are combed and ready for worsted spinning or combining with other fibers.
